Where everyone is busy in comparing the specs and price tags of latest flagships such as Samsung Galaxy S8 duo and LG G6, many of the affordable options are lacking the necessary attention. The mid-range smartphones also offer attractive specifications that we sometimes forget to discover. In the race of smartphones with normal price tags and high-end specifications, ASUS Zenfone 3 Zoom and Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) are the competitors in today’s article. These decisive factors can help you discover the best one among both these premium devices.
Talking about the performance, the specification difference of both the phones matters a lot. It’s Snapdragon 625 vs Exynos 7880 SoC. Also, the RAM of Zenfone 3 Zoom is 4 GB while Galaxy comes with a smaller 3 GB RAM. The biggest difference that can be counted is that of the processor chip. SD625 comes in many of the premium smartphones like the Moto G5 Plus or ZTE Blade V8 Pro. The battery is also a very important factor which ASUS claims to be better than that of iPhone 7‘s.
On the other hand, the Galaxy A7 (2017) comes with another good option in terms of Exynos 7880 which is also an octa-core affair with eight 1.9 GHz Cortex-A53 cores. The only thing that lacks a bit in Samsung is the RAM which comes with a GB short than that of Zenfone.
Another decisive factor between these two phones is the display. Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom comes with a medium 5.5-inch display with a fullHD result with the standard 1920 x 1080 resolution.
While Samsung has the lead in this case as the A7 comes with a slightly larger display of 5.7-inches. The resolution is exactly the same as that of Asus with an added functionality of fingerprint sensor on the home button of the front panel.
The Asus Zenfone 3 comes with more of a professional dual-camera setup on its back. It has a 3x optical zoom and 2.3x magnification on one of its lenses. The camera has a f/1.7 aperture and OIS (optical image stabilization). Not only this, Asus Zenfone has a powerful selfie camera of 13-megapixel with f/2.0.
